Bluetooth technology and pacemakers

Is it safe to use my Bluetooth device if I have a pacemaker?

At this time, we have no information specific to the interaction of Bluetooth devices and pacemakers.

 We therefore have no specific guidance.

The Advanced Medical Technology Association recommends that persons with pacemakers keep cell phones at least six inches from the pacemaker.

Individuals who are concerned may choose to follow this recommendation for Bluetooth devices as well.
